For Urban Cone — four high-school friends from a Stockholm suburb — creating irresistibly catchy, emotionally resonant music that has the potential to connect with fans all over the world is all they’ve ever wanted. Formed in 2010, Urban Cone has enjoyed substantial success in their native Sweden with their debut album, 2013’s Our Youth, and 2015’s Polaroid Memories, which was also released in the U.S. The band’s sound — feel-good, indie electro-pop — earned them positive praise from such tastemaker outlets as Brooklyn Vegan, VICE/Thump, Idolator, and Stereogum. Urban Cone toured Europe with fellow Swedish rising star Tove Lo and the U.S. with The Griswolds. It was during their summer U.S. tour that Urban Cone began coming up with ideas for their upcoming third album, A Whole Lifetime of Happiness, which will be released by Interscope Records/Universal Sweden. Vocalist/keyboardist Rasmus Flyckt and vocalist/bassist Emil Gustafsson had written and produced Urban Cone’s music themselves and this time they wanted to take a different approach. The songs on the new album are anchored by harder, hip-hop-influenced beats and funky guitars, while retaining those sparkling melodies that Swedish music-makers seem to conjure up so effortlessly.
